Coronavirus USA Updates: NJ reopening retail for curbside pickup

In New Jersey, nonessential retail stores can open for curbside pickup beginning Monday, though customers cannot go inside, Gov. Phil Murphy announced Wednesday.

Drive-in and drive-thru events, like movies and religious services, will also be allowed, as long as people remain in their cars, Murphy said.

Looking forward, the state is working on a plan to reopen facilities for elective surgeries, the governor said.

“While we’ve made enormous progress, we’re still not in the end zone,” Murphy cautioned. “As we take these steps, we ask for your continued patience. We’re moving slowly and deliberately because any misstep risks further outbreaks.”
